HONOLULU (AP) — Chevan Cordeiro passed for three touchdowns, Dedrick Parson ran for two scores and Hawaii beat Portland State 49-35 in the first-ever football game played on school campus.
The 9,000-seat retro-fitted Clarence T.C. Ching Complex will be the program’s home until the New Aloha Stadium Entertainment District is completed.
It was Hawaii’s first home game outside of Aloha Stadium since Dec. 7, 1974 when the Rainbow Warriors hosted Arizona State at Honolulu Stadium, which had served as the team’s home field from 1926-74.
Davis Alexander threw for 400 yards and three touchdowns for Portland State (0-1), but much of that came after the Rainbow Warriors had the game well in hand.
